Please take a moment to read our review in full as we would want you to enjoy your stay here as much as possible and benefit from the things we learnt after booking. Nothing about our stay would detract from how good this place is to stay and we definitely want to stay here again. Alfonso is a fantastic host, always there to help and wants to ensure you have as great a time as possible. The villa is beautiful and in fantastic peaceful surroundings.
However, please just check first as the location information on the Holiday Lettings site is wrong and when we booked placed the villa to the north west of central Rome. It is actually to the east of Genzano di Roma on the outskirts of a town called Lariano. The setting for this villa is wonderful - it is quiet, on a hillside and in the trees. However, given its location we believe you do need a car, especially if flying into any of Rome's airports. There are regular trains from nearby Velletri to central Rome, so an early start for a full day there is well worth it for the enjoyment of having this villa to come back to. Lariano and Velletri are brilliant towns with lots of places to eat and supermarkets are close to the villa for supplies. But a car was necessary for this holiday without spending a lot of time on buses or money on taxis. We would definitely recommend staying here. However, our final piece of advice would be to not book through Holiday Lettings but to find his property on AirBnB or other sites, it comes up if you search 'holiday letting Lariano'. The fact that the information on their site isn't correct (despite Alfonso's attempts to get them to correct this) and that their customer service was appalling when we were trying to resolve an issue resulting from it, means we wouldn't book through them again. Definitely worth looking for this villa elsewhere and booking it, we loved it!
